Akai MPC3000

Not our usual offering here at RL Music but we accepted this classic sequencer-sampler as a part-exchange deal and thought it would be something different to offer our customers.

The MPC3000 is a true pro-audio grade instrument and has been adopted by HipHop, Rap, R&B artists as their studio production weapon of choice. It has 16-bit stereo 44.1Khz sampling and a very sophisticated sequencer which offers 20 Songs, 99 sequences, 99 tracks, and up to 75,000 notes. It has extensive high-spec MIDI implementation as well, so fits in perfectly into a modern DAW environment.

This machine is running OS 3.11 and has the full compliment of 32MB RAM installed. This unit also comes with a ‘classic drum machines’ library on 10 floppy disks.

KSR has just gone over the Akai and given it a full service, which was mostly just cleaning of pots, switches and slider etc. The operational condition of this MPC3000 is perfect, with the overall cosmetic condition as very good, as you can see from the pictures.

This particular machine runs 110V, but the synth will be supplied with a brand new step-down transformer if sold within the EU. Also, the MPC3000 is sold with a full 3 month warranty.

Price: £590 GBP.

Availability: This MPC3000 is now SOLD as at 7th October 2013.

Sci STUDIO 440

Sequential Circuits Studio 440 Sampler

This great sounding instrument is considered one of the best Vintage Sequencing/Sampling Drum & Music Productions Machines ever made!

It’s not something we would normally deal in but we had the opportunity to play one recently and consider it’s reputation was well founded – a really great sounding sampler.

Its beautifully designed, intuitive to use and feels very much like a Sequential product in the materials and parts used. The architecture is impressive with a clean and very punchy 12bit sampling and some clever MIDI implementation as well. These are very rare and sought after machines & we have been lucky to get hold of two of them and this is the first one ready for sale.

KSR has just fully overhauled this particular example including servicing and calibrating the floppy-drive. The unit has some light wear to the panel graphics but otherwise it’s in almost new condition throughout. We have also had all 8 drum-pads replaced with brand new items from WineCountry in the USA so it’s plays perfectly..

We also have a reasonably large library that will be included with this Studio 440 unit, and it’s original user manual.

This example is sold with a full 3 months warranty and run on UK/EU voltage.
